Block Drawing

   Spool Block
(The block is so nice, I show it twice!)
(10 ½ inches unfinished)

Cream or light tan background

Medium or dark brown spool ends

Block center -  any color you want

Cut one 6 1/2 “  square for the center of the block

Cut two 2 ½” X 12” strips of background fabric for side borders

Cut two 1 ½” X 12” strips of background fabric and two 1 ½” X 12” strips of brown fabric. 

Sew each brown strip to one background fabric strip to give two 2 ½” X 12” top and bottom borders to add to the center square.  Add the 4 borders to the center square, mitering corners and trimming excess fabric.
